Link love

When teamwork doesn’t work for women.  Btw, I have anecdotal evidence for pretty much every statement made in this piece (including what people say about Betsey Stevenson!).

I’m a bit tired of work-life balance stuff, but if we’re going to talk about it, it shouldn’t just be about women

Why elementary is better than sherlock

Give the land back to its rightful owners

What does it mean when somebody complains about political correctness?

Guns are our shared responsibility.  Guns and money.   Why Obama cried. Because he is human.

Structural workplace strategies that enhance stuff

Just in case you need one

We especially like #4.  New years resolutions from dances with fat.

You can both be a moderator and an abstainer!

    That work-life balance article was SO good. Thanks for sharing!

    Hugely HUGELY disappointed that you would link to Ragen Chastain of Dances with Fat. This is a woman who has encouraged her readers to ignore their doctors advice and who has faked and lied her way through “training” for an IronMan. She is a scam artist, a fraud, and a danger to her followers. Please do some research on her and consider NEVER giving her any publicity again.

    Oh, I love that Brian comic. I’ve sworn off Dilbert due to Scott Adams being odious, so I need to find some new comics to follow. Thanks for reminding me about SBMC!

    Thanks for the link, nicoleandmaggie, and for posting all these. The NY Times one on how women don’t get credit for co-publishing sounds (alas) too true even for non-economists.

    Loving loving loving the Gilbert & Sullivan parody. (Although subtitles would have been nice because their voices are so soft.)

    The only comic I read is Mutts. :-)

    Liked the piece on Elementary vs. Sherlock. I haven’t seen any of the “Sherlock” shows, and season 3 of Elementary we had to watch all at once because CBS stopped posting it for weekly streaming on Hulu. We found that it read much better via binge-watching … the through stories came across more coherently. In the weekly format, the complexity of the weekly stories kind of got confusing (this is likely my own fault for often reading through an episode). Anyway, I am very much looking forward to binge-watching season 4 in due course.

    Not noted in that piece, but worthwhile: Jonny Lee Miller’s Sherlock is really quite the unpleasant bastard much of the time. The performance shows a commitment to realism in the character that I appreciate. He has a sense of humor and he isn’t trying to be a dick, but there are connections missing, he is aware of them, and he can’t (or simply doesn’t) always work around that. It is really rare to see a starring role in a network show played in a way that does not try to make the character warm & fuzzy.

    I thought of you when I saw the teamwork article too. Would love to see you expand on that. Also, hi from a longtime lurker.

      Hi longtime lurker! Welcome and lurk no more!

      In terms of expanding, I’m not sure I have much more to say than what Wolfers says (and I can totally confirm his observations). Did you have any specific thoughts?
